Turkish Manti

I distinctly remember the first time I had manti. It was on my first visit to Istanbul. Selim's cousins took us out to dinner one night at a restaurant I wish I could remember 🤷‍♀️ I was eyeing the mantı, that was described in English as "lamb dumplings in yogurt sauce." One of Selim's cousins... Continue Reading →

Potatoes Vindaloo

Tonight's recipe is our second effort from Plenty, by Yotam Ottolenghi. Our first attempt was the super unique Eggplant & Mango Soba Noodles, which we loved! I love all things carbs, so a dish of not one, but two types of potatoes is right up my ally. We enjoyed cooking with curry leaves for the... Continue Reading →

Eggplant & Mango Soba Noodles

For Cookbook Club this month, we're cooking Plenty, by Yotam Ottolenghi. I love Ottolenghi... he's one of my favorite chefs to follow on social media and I find his recipes universally delicious! I was introduced to him several years back when my sister gave me the cookbook Jerusalem that he co-authored with Sami Tamimi. It... Continue Reading →

Indian-ish Chicken Breasts

Our first month of participating in the Kitchn's Cookbook Club was a resounding success! We impressed ourselves by making several things out of September's selection - Salt Fat Acid Heat. [See: Pasta with Clams & Sausage, Chocolate Cupcakes with Rosewater Cream, and Sausages & Roasted Veggies in Agrodolce] For October, the book selected is Indian... Continue Reading →

Pasta with Clams & Sausage

On Instagram a few weeks back, The Kitchn announced that they were creating a virtual cookbook club (ie: a book club, but with cookbooks...). I got really excited! I love cookbooks, trying new recipes, and getting inspired from different sources, but honestly sometimes I'm a little lazy about it. Frankly, a lot of times it's easier... Continue Reading →

Lemony Chicken & Orzo

After I typed up the recipe portion of this recipe, I looked up at our most recent posts and apparently we're going a little overboard with the lemon (Lemon Blueberry Muffins, Lemon Blueberry Skillet Cake)! So sorry, but we're featuring lemons again tonight. This is one of those recipes that got passed around because it's... Continue Reading →

Lamb Meatballs with Minty Pesto

Here's our first guest chef post courtesy of Ally's mom! How this hasn't happened before is mind-boggling because she is an amazing cook. Ally was super lucky to grow up with a mom who made homemade dinner essentially every night of the week. As a typical ungrateful teenager, Ally used to not appreciate this as much as...

Corn Cacio e Pepe

Happy Mac n Cheese Day! When we realized that was today, we couldn't pass up the opportunity! We love mac n cheese around here - from the classic Kraft blue box to the most upscale restaurant variation. The dish we made tonight falls somewhere in the middle. The pasta did come from a box -...
